It was just average. I got a picadillo taco salad, but the picadillo lacked the flavor of traditional picadillo. My taco salad was lacking lettuce, an essential ingredient for a salad. I mean, it had some...but not enough. The shell seemed homemade, but it fell apart almost instantly. The interior of the place was dingy and dirty, and the service... More

We had a large group and the restaurant was extremely busy with a large group of wild fire fighters there so service was understandably a bit slow. What La Fiesta lacked in service, certainly made up for in great food. Who would know a little town tucked away in the middle of no where would service some of the best... More

We recently stopped in Ely for a nite. We were looking for a local place to eat and found the La Fiesta Restaurant; what a pleasant surprise. We could tell that travelers & locals were there & our waitress knew them all! I wish I could remember her name but she was Hispanic & had lovely rows of earrings on... More

This restaurant does not have good curb appeal, but the locals all know La Fiesta as an authentic Mexican restaurant. The Enchiladas with Hatch green sauce is none other than awesome. The beans has a red sauce mixed in to give them an unusual and very flavorful taste. Best part, they serve an unusual one of a kind ceviche tasting... More

The cabbage slaw dip is amazing. The food is good and the margaritas will melt your face. I have always had a good experience here.

We chose this restaurant because we could walk to it from our motel after a long day's drive. I had the Pollo Asado which was good but the big hit was the Repollo, a cabbage, onion and cilantro slaw with lime. So refreshing, never had it before at a Mexican restaurant. I'll be making this at home!

Good Mexican food, in eastern Nevada, while overnight in Ely, NV. While food was tasty - the service was slow & staff not attentive. Few smiles & staff seemed bothered that we were there. We'd eat here again for the fold- but may try elsewhere for better service.

We had a great dinner while staying at the Ramada & Copper Queen. Great Grande Margarita and we'll prepared food. Excellent chili rel & enchiladas! Service was very friendly and fast. Will definitely visit again on our return trip home.

Busy night on a holiday weekend; our waitress was working hard but service was very slow. Clean bathrooms but the rest of the place was very dirty; debris strewn everywhere and filthy carpet. Substandard margarita. Delicious corn salsa, chicken mole, and chicken tostada though, so at least the food was good.
